Podcast: Galaxy Are Ready for Weekend El Tráfico — With Guest Victor Vazquez

LA Galaxy midfielder Victor Vazquez joins the show to talk about this weekend’s rivalry game with LAFC and why Greg Vanney is building a winner.

COG STUDIOS, Calif. — It’s everyone’s favorite holiday! And it gets celebrated at least three times a year. That’s right! It’s the first El Tráfico of 2021, which means that your LA Galaxy will be hosting LAFC this Saturday. 

We’re going to do what we always do and get you ready for the biggest game and the biggest rivalry in MLS

And to give us the best insight into what might be happening on the field this weekend, we’ve enlisted the help of Galaxy midfielder Victor Vazquez. 

Hosts Josh Guesman and Sophie Nicolaou talk with Victor about the role Galaxy head coach Greg Vanney has him play and what the vibe in the clubhouse is. We’ll also ask him about his injury in Seattle and if he’ll be available for this weekend’s match. 

And after we’re done talking to Victor, Josh and Sophie will discuss the El Trafico precursor — El Traficito between USL sides LA Galaxy II and Las Vegas Lights. There’s a lot of fun to be had watching the future of the Galaxy on full display, and we have a little hint at how that will become a regular thing on the podcast!

But today’s show is all about Galaxy news you can trust and about coming clean on a massive failure ahead of the Galaxy’s game with LAFC. Did anyone catch the injury news ahead of the game? You didn’t because nobody asked. So we’ll go over some of what was said during the media call and tell you the injury concerns we have headed into Saturday’s match. 



Finally, we’ve got a big game preview from the Hammer, and we get you ready for a game against a formidable opponent. But for whatever reason, we’re feeling optimistic. Can the Galaxy get a win over LAFC at home? Let’s find out!

As always, we appreciate you joining us and remind you to stay safe at the stadium this weekend!
